Shanghai: Commuters in China’s commercial capital will soon be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi service inside its city buses.
Shanghai Bashi Group, the bus operator, said it intends to provide Wi-Fi in response to passengers’ increasing demands, and was working with telecom companies, Shanghai Daily reported Tuesday.
A spokeswoman with the Shanghai Telecom Co. said they were still preparing and testing the technology for buses.
Smartphone users currently have little access to free Wi-Fi on public transportation such as on the metro and buses. Such service is available in other cities like Guangzhou in southern China.
In Shanghai’s Lujiazui financial area, office workers can enjoy free Wi-Fi at bus stations but not onboard.
